BUT I FLY DANCE
inspires the Youth through MOVEMENT!
The Company is a Contemporary Dance Company for young people who live in Hamburg.
Being part of this group offers young talented dancers the chance to be involved in various dance productions, often multi-artistic projects, workshops from invited guest teachers and even exchanges with other youth dance groups.
The focus of the company is to encourage and build on their own creativity. They become familiarised with choreographic tasks, become accustomed to various improvisational assignments and appreciate the opportunity to collaborate with other artists.

OUR CONCEPT AND DANCE STYLE
But I Fly Dance is a Youth Dance Organisation that Fiona Gordon founded in 2015.
Fiona decided to use all of her knowledge she had collected through her experiences as a dancer, choreographer and dance teacher over many years and offer classes to the youth, from beginners to advanced, from 10 - 21 years old!
She encourages their creativity to stay alive through her improvisation and choreographic work and captures the dancers' enthusiasm through her energetic classes.
If you feel like getting more involved with dance, then this could be just the right thing for you. There will be several workshops waiting for you to gain experience and exchange ideas. Together we will develop choreographies which we can also show at different performance opportunities.
Fiona teaches her own contemporary style, which is a culmination of her knowledge along her own dance journey. After accomplishing her own research project, she has developed her own technique that she calls Contemporary-Bow.
She introduces the dancer to the Bowspring principles, combined within the contemporary class. This allows the dancer to discover their natural double S-curve in the spine, it gives them a sense of rooting but also lightness and an amazing inner strength and stretch into their extremities.
In the course of the class Fiona focuses on allowing the dancer to find her/his own expression in the movement and gets the dancers moving with different dynamics, level and spatial changes. The dancer is encouraged to be creative through improvisation tasks, movement research, movement images, focus awareness and group connectivity.
But I Fly Dance finds it essential that the dancers get the opportunity to deepen their dance experience through working with other teachers and choreographers, offering them different approaches and new inspirations.
We also have got involved in youth dance exchanges and wish to visit youth dance festivals. This is a great way to get well networked and gives the dancers a wonderful opportunity to see how others work and find out more about the dance world!
Come on, join us!
Take that first essential step and get in touch with us and join class and begin to make new discoveries!
We look forward to meeting you!
Fiona Gordon is the founder of this organisation. She began her career originally as a professional dancer and dance teacher. She's a great lover of observing and working with the human body, the posture, the movement and the expression.
She has the ability to illuminate peoples' personalities by interpreting their movement or posture, through observing their bodys' movement patterns, consequently finding ways to help them make subtle changes to allow her students to grow both physically and psychologically, both externally and internally.
She is a passionate dancer, dance teacher and is now very dedicated to the Bowspring practice. She is currently working intensely on combining her Bowspring knowledge together with her Contemporary dance techniques to develop something completely new, called the Contemporary Bow Technique, which she believes can help the dance students to find a deeper inner strength, become more conscious of their elasticity by working with their fascia and muscle connections, deter them from getting physical injuries and gives them their ROOTS in order for them to FLY!
Fiona is also very excited to open up her boundaries and have the chance to help train not only dancers but also people that are interested in making changes in their bodies. She has created a new Website called: www.fascia-nation.de so inform yourself there if you're curious to know more about the Bowspring Classes that Fiona has to offer, both online and live classes in Hamburg!
